Paramotor Geometry, Part 1: What is your flying style?

| by | Paramotor Geometry | 0 comments:

Miroslav Svec, designer of SCOUT paramotors shares his knowledge about paramotor construction. “If someone’s first question about a paramotor is how much does it weight, I know this person has little knowledge about paramotors. While weight and power are the only measurable parameters of the paramotor, the geometry of the paramotor is way more important.” This is the first video of a full series. We will cover every aspect of paramotor construction, the theory and reasoning behind. At the moment we have around 30 videos on the list. At the end of this, you will be able to make a … Continued

Paramotor Geometry, Part 2: Why suspension is most important?

| by | Paramotor Geometry | 0 comments:

Paramotor suspension system has the most impact on how much fun you will have in the air. It largely influences handling, your comfort and safety as well. This is part 2 in our classroom. We will cover every aspect of paramotor construction, the theory and reasoning behind. At the moment we have around 30 videos on the list. At the end of this, you will be able to make a qualified judgment what is the ultimate best paramotor for you. The suspension is the very most important thing when choosing a paramotor. It has huge impact on handling: 1. weight-shift: … Continued

Paramotor Geometry, Part 3: Why weight-shift is more fun and more safe?

| by | Paramotor Geometry | 0 comments:

“I have to warn you: In this part I will be biased. I am a big advocate of weight shift steering in paramotors. I know many pilots who have switched to a weigthshift paramotor. I know zero pilots who have switched back. It takes some time to get used to it, but then you will never want fly a non-weight shift paramotor.” This is part 3 in our classroom. Miroslav Svec, designer of SCOUT paramotors shares his knowledge about paramotor construction, the theory and reasoning behind. At the moment we have around 30 videos on the list. At the end … Continued

Paramotor Geometry, Part 4: How much weight-shift authority you get?

| by | Paramotor Geometry | 0 comments:

Things might get a little controversial in this video… spicy especially in the second part of it. This is part 4 in our classroom. Miroslav Svec, designer of SCOUT paramotors shares his knowledge about paramotor construction, the theory and reasoning behind. At the moment we have around 30 videos on the list. At the end of this, you will be able to make a qualified judgment what is the ultimate best paramotor for you. Your weight-shift authority depends on following: 1. carabiner position: high, medium or low 2. bar type: fixed or moving LEG WORK: * Fixed bars keep the … Continued

Paramotor Geometry, Part 5: Pitch stability under power

| by | Paramotor Geometry | 0 comments:

Now it’s time to add some power! In the last video we had two pictures wrong, so come along with us and find it out after we’ve added some power! This video speaks about 4th decision that a paramotor designer needs to make and that is where to place the thrust line relative to the carabines. To prevent pitching forward or backward, paramotor designers needs to move their cages with whole motor and propeller. Find out which system and how needs to be moved. Little spoilers, the gooseneck bars won this time, so stay tune for more videos like this! … Continued

Paramotor Geometry Part 6: Speed bar behavior.

| by | Paramotor Geometry | 0 comments:

Pushing the speed bar sometimes leads to surprising results. And the suspension system is crucial. This is part 6 in our classroom. Miroslav Svec, designer of SCOUT paramotors shares his knowledge about paramotor construction, the theory and reasoning behind. At the end of the roughly 30 videos in the series you will be able to make a qualified judgment what is the ultimate best paramotor for you. Pushing the speedbar has two direct and immediate effects: 1. your upper back applies pressure on the paramotor frame backwards 2. your center of gravity changes especially when pushing the speedbar forward not … Continued

Paramotor Geometry Part 7: Ground-handling and running with a paramotor.

| by | Paramotor Geometry | 0 comments:

Your flight starts on the ground. Lift the glider and run. And yes, your suspension system affects your groundhandling more than you would think… This is part 7 in our classroom. Miroslav Svec, designer of SCOUT paramotors shares his knowledge about paramotor construction, the theory and reasoning behind. At the end of the roughly 30 videos in the series you will be able to make a qualified judgment what is the ultimate best paramotor for you. With high suspension systems your glider is a bit too high and so are the glider controls. The As, the Bs and the brakes … Continued

Paramotor Geometry Part 8: How paramotor suspension affects the comfort in flight?

| by | Paramotor Geometry | 0 comments:

So let’s talk about comfort in flight this time! In this video you will learn that the suspension has a big impact on your comfort in flight. We decided that your comfort in the air can be measured in three ways: 1: Reach for the glider controls 2: Reach for the camera(reach for all the stuff you need during flight) 3: How nervous the glider feels in turbulence. So stay with us and you will learn, which suspension system is best for your style and for you!  

Paramotor Geometry Part 9: The secret “question mark” suspension.

We are getting pretty close to finish the suspension block, we have covered: weight shift pitch stability speed bar behavior ground handling in flight comfort. Before the final big comparison, we have to reveal the ,,secret,, suspension system! You will be surprised, how easy is to fix some problems, that different suspensions have! So stay with us and you will learn, which suspension system is best for your style and for you! Should you have questions, pleasse leave a comment.
